Transparent appointment by Amnesty

Amnesty International UK has appointed a transparency and accountability manager, making it one of the first organisations in the voluntary sector to do so.

Simone Pereira joins from Global Governance Services, where she researched and analysed models of governance and contributed to reports on governance for the World Bank.

The new position ties in with a number of accountability initiatives Amnesty has adopted recently, including the International Non-Government Organisations Accountability Charter and the Global Reporting Initiative.

“We’ve audited all our systems, policies and processes using the best-practice standards provided by the GRI,” said Fiona Fisher, director of organisational development at Amnesty. “We’ll continue this work with our in-house expert, strengthening our transparency and accountability infrastructure.”

Rob Lloyd, accountability manager at the One World Trust, a charity that has published the Global Accountability Report for the past two years, said the appointment was good news for the sector. “Organisations are now starting to report on their compliance with the initiatives they have signed for,” he said.
